Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Exciting! My ten-year-old reader said it was a "very enjoyable book." It can "get your enthusiasm up real high, and on a bad day it gets your hopes up. And I really liked the part about all the machine guns, and the escaping, and how he went through the gun. It was very exciting! My favorite part is at the end where he...committed his life to Christ and found out the Lord was actually watching over him by letting him go instead of it being bad luck." He recommends this book to other readers his age. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Book... I really enjoyed this book. The author did a great job of bringing up biblical problems in a fun themed thriller story. Thanks! March 11, 2013
